How to Scale Yourself While Scaling Your Company (NASDAQ Entrepreneur Center)
No startup succeeds without help from others. Learn to leverage your network, become resource-efficient & drive breakthrough opportunities
Here’s the truth: your network is the only asset where you can get access to opportunities and resources you can’t afford to pay for yet. However, most leaders massively underinvest in their relationships—either because they’re always putting out fires or, worse, because they believe the ability to build great relationships is something you have, or you don’t. This session will show you how to master the skills needed to inspire others to join your cause, follow you through hell and back, and support you with access to game-changing opportunities.
Many early stage CEOs are proud of their identity as a “scrappy” entrepreneur, but as a company scales, it no longer works for the CEO to “do it all.” In fact, the hallmark of success for early stage founders is not versatility but resource efficiency. Early on, when your resources are limited, the key to being resource-efficient is leveraging the one resource you have that’s almost limitless: your network. We’ll show you how.
You’ll walk away with:
How to consistently drive breakthrough opportunities to your doorstep by leveraging the process behind nearly every great referral, from talent to fundraising to marquee clients.
How to win the urgency vs importance battle, allowing you to become a proactive leader rather than a reactive figurehead.
How to create more meaningful interactions that allow you to go deep fast while earning the respect and admiration of the people who most influence your company’s success.
